This is a bold expression of hillside Cabernet, with a dark iridescent violet-hued red color. Complex aromas of cassis, tobacco leaf, cedar, and espresso, are coupled with a monlithic structure of high-quality tannins that is built to last for decades. A long, lingering finish evokes forest floor and classic Cabernet flavors. This vintage was sourced from a rocky hillside vineyard perched above the fogline in Knights Valley. There the terroir is conducive to making inky, concentrated wines of great distinction. That is the essence of Delectus.
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon French Wedding is another blockbuster with an inky/purple color, but with slightly softer tannins than the Boulder Falls or the Bear Crossing. Sweet and rich, with notes of crème de cassis, charcoal, graphite and spice box, this full-bodied, thick, juicy Cabernet Sauvignon will be ready to drink in 7-8 years. Unlike its siblings, Boulder Falls and Bear Crossing, this should only have 30+ years of aging potential! Delectus Winery is going against the prevailing winds in trying to make wines for future generations. Kudos to them.
